I went back to the exhibit titled “orchids: A MOMENT” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as the notice advertising it said the exhibits would be changed periodically, and so they were, at least some of them. Such a beautiful display! I only wish more of it was accessible, but since it’s arranged on a big wall, many of the plants were far too high to photograph.

I was simply fascinated by these unusual orchids and tried to get several captures of them.

I had no idea there's such an amazing variety of orchids! You have a knack of showing us things we've never seen before.

I find these funny looking like a helicopter propeller

Gorgeous. These remind me of little insects with wings closed, just waiting to fly off. Lovely capture. V
